BlackBerry Devices: Secure As They Have Always Been

Security

There have been recent media reports that police-affiliated groups in the Netherlands have been able to ‘crack’ the encryption protecting e-mails and other data that are stored on BlackBerry devices.

BlackBerry does not have any details on the specific device or the way that it was configured, managed or otherwise protected, nor do we have details on the nature of the communications that are claimed to have been decrypted.

If such an information recovery did happen, access to this information from a BlackBerry device could be due to factors unrelated to how the BlackBerry device was designed, such as user consent, an insecure third party application, or deficient security behavior of the user.

Furthermore, there are no backdoors in any BlackBerry devices, and BlackBerry does not store and therefore cannot share BlackBerry device passwords with law enforcement or anyone else. In other words, provided that users follow recommended practices, BlackBerry devices remain as secure and private as they have always been.

    […] 数日前经荷兰法庭学院(NFI)证实,荷兰当地媒体报道称荷兰警方已经具备从黑莓手机中提取加密信息的能力。对此今天,黑莓现任CEO程守宗在声明中重申公司一如既往地捍卫智能手机安全,并坚信为其浇筑了坚不可摧的安全长城。声明中写道:“黑莓绝不会在产品中预留安全方面的详细资料或者已经配置、管理和其他保护措施的方案信息,因此他们声称已经成功破译的通信类型中也绝不会找到相关详细资料。” […]
